Race Wrap29th November 2018
The ever popular Urban MAX was held on Saturday the 24th of November in Sydney’s CBD. A great mix of social and racing competitors of all ages gathered near Central train station with a buzz of anticipation in the air.
The Urban MAX differs significantly to the usual adventure race as it has a fun family atmosphere and focuses on solving cryptic clues to find your way around the city. With public transport allowed there, was plenty of time to be made up with the smart use of a train, light rail, bus or route selection.
Once at one of the 20 check points there was a number of fun challenges ranging from slacklining, pool, indoor rock climbing, musical trivia, constructing balloon animals, soccer, kayaking and many, many more!
The social category saw the biggest turnout of teams, with the largest percentage being female teams. There was also lots of families and first timers racing around the CBD for up to 6 hours. This meant there was a strong focus on team work and enjoying the ‘amazing race’ experience. Congratulations to all competitors. Social category team results can be found HERE.
A great turn out of teams also competed in the Racing category with the mixed teams making up the largest portion. Over the 6 hours many teams covered close to 20km around the city which lead to some tired legs but also plenty of smiles to be seen. Racing category results can be found HERE.
